Water features 2/2: Installation

How to install a water feature

The pump should be placed in the deep section of the pond and, from here, you can feed a fountain with water via a telescopic tube (1) or a stream with a hose (2). With the EHEIM PLAY pump series you can do both at the same time depending on the set-up. 
To operate the fountain feature the length of tube has to be extended to suit the depth of the pond. The vertical position of the tube can be adjusted by means of a ball joint so that the tube is upright even if the pump is situated on an uneven base. A selection of nozzles are included to enable you to create various fountain effects.


Take your pump out of the pond in winter, clean it and store it in a bucket of water until next spring.
